Street art fans already know that the neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn, with its artist-friendly rent and budding gallery scene, is also one of the hottest, most fertile areas in NYC to find amazing new street art popping up virtually everywhere you look. Appropriately, BKLYN House, an affordable  new hotel, which had its soft opening in December, 2015, is providing a dynamic venue for showcasing  the work of many of Brooklyn’s local artists.

The bright, loft-style boutique hotel has 116 guest rooms, a modern and sleek industrial-style design and a collection of local street-art inspired artwork, including unique murals — one on each floor —  depicting one of the unique areas of Brooklyn, which were commissioned specifically for the BKLYN Hotel.

Additionally, the walls of the hotel’s common areas, such as the breakfast room — where guests can enjoy a delicious free breakfast that is included with their room reservation — and the lounge / business center, feature many colorful paintings that pay homage to the vibrant neighborhood scene.

All art was curated by local gallerist Steven Gonzalez Marin of the Renaissance Collective, who partnered with Image Gallery to select a group of 11 artists, each assigned a neighborhood in Brooklyn that would inspire a wall-sized thematic mural. Check these out!
